Autumn leaves aren't the only thing blowing in the breeze this month at Castle in the Air. Our cuckoo clock collection has been sprouting wings and flying right out the door! It always surprises us which items garner interest all of a sudden. The clocks, most of which come from Germany's Schwartzvald, are a dear part of the shop, so we've placed orders for several more to arrive between now and the end of the year. Come by to check out the intricate woodwork and the whimsical dancing and chimes on these treasures.
(Strange cuckoo trivia: Did you know that the cuckoo bird lays its eggs in the nests of several other species of birds, and that the eggs always match those in the "cuckolded" nest?)
